As a consumer and Ford vehicle owner, you have the right and freedom to select the technician and the workshop of your choice to service your vehicle.
New regulations have been put into place to ensure that main dealerships no longer have a monopoly on the New Car Servicing industry.
We, as your local trusted mechanics, can provide NEW CAR WARRANTY SERVICING for your Ford, with the service carried out according to Ford manufacturer’s specifications and genuine or appropriate Ford quality parts used. This maintains the Ford new vehicle warranty as guaranteed by the Motor Traders Association of NSW.
Remember – Most new vehicle manufacturer’s warranties will be voided unless your vehicle is serviced every 6 months or 10,000 km. Maintaining your warranty’s coverage is getting your servicing done to the manufacturer’s specifications.
This is really important! If, for example, there is a 15,000km service interval and you’ve driven 25,000km without getting a service, you could be up for a new engine if you’ve run too low on oil. You have to conform to the service interval specified in the Ford manual. If it says six months or 15,000km you have to service the car when the time gets to six months or the odometer gets to 15,000km — whichever occurs first. Whoever performs the service needs to meet the Ford manufacturer’s specifications (for example they must change the oil and replace it with oil of appropriate specification, and do everything else in the schedule by the book). The industry ‘default’ warranty is three years or 100,000km – whichever comes first.
Sutherland Shire Auto Centre can carry out the manufacturers logbook services as required, in our workshop in Kirrawee. The Ford Tailored Service Program offers the certainty of knowing exactly how much your next scheduled service will cost.
We stamp the logbook and the Ford factory warranty remains valid. We pride ourselves on the use of quality compliant ‘name brand’ parts fitted by fully qualified technicians.
Due to these stringent standards new car statutory warranties remain unaffected by a Shire Auto Centre log book service. Some retailers encourage consumers to buy an extended warranty offering additional benefits for extra cost. Consumers should check that the protection offered is more than that available under the statutory warranty.
We believe that the key to great consumer outcomes is to have both Ford dealers and independent repairers, like us, on a level playing field, competing for customers on their merits.
